@danPortnoy and @portnoymedia are not the name brand main stream names you think of when you think of Media Hype and Internet Chic… but only if you are really uncool.

I had been interviewed on many a podcast, but no one had ever talked me into LISTENING to one until I kept hearing about The Drop and finally broke down and listened.

So . . answer me truly – who do you admire that I may not have heard of yet?
